Submental fullness, or the appearance of a double chin, can hide your neckline and obscure your chin profile, making you look older. It can also have an impact on your self-confidence! Now you can treat submental fullness without the use of surgery by getting treatment with Kybella.
What Causes Submental Fullness
Submental fullness can be due to weight gain, but sometimes it can be present even with regular exercise and a healthy diet. Aging also has an effect on submental fullness. As we age, our skin becomes weaker and begins to sag around the lower face and under the chin. Others have submental fullness due to genetic factors that are out of their control.
How Kybella can Help
Kybella can treat submental fullness using a synthetic deoxycholic acid formula, a molecule that naturally helps in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected under the chin, the formula attacks fat cells, destroying them for good. After optimal treatment sessions, Kybella can give you a more defined chin with lasting results.
Are you a Candidate?
You can benefit from Kybella if you are self-conscious about excess fat under your chin making you look older or heavier than you actually are. Your submental fullness should only be treated with Kybella if diet and exercise fail to give results. Those who are not ready to treat submental fullness with a more invasive procedure like liposuction can choose treatment with Kybella.
